Bonnie Meets Mooji
In May of 2017, Bonnie met in person one of her dearest spiritual wisdom carriers – Mooji. Because of Mooji’s many pointings so generously shared via his YouTube videos, retreats, books, and recorded Sunday Satsangs, Bonnie has experienced a profound shift in awareness, consciousness, and presence. She has tremendous gratitude for all that Mooji has offered to the world and with this page intends to bring attention to this wonderful being that we are so blessed to have on the planet at this time.
This video was recorded as part of the Zmar retreat in Portugal. Many thanks to the Mooji Sangha team for capturing this beautiful moment that will be forever cherished.
Our beloved Mooji is a spiritual teacher and a disciple of Papaji, a devotee of the advaita and non-dual master Ramana Maharshi. Mooji shares self-inquiry, directing his students to the non-dual Self by encouraging them to question who or what they are at the deepest level.
“First sort yourself out by understanding what you truly are, through recognizing what you are not and your world, a projection of your psyche, will become increasingly beautiful and peaceful, for the world is nothing but the reflection of your inner state.”
Anthony Paul Moo-Young (aka Mooji) was born on 29 January 1954 in Port Antonio, Jamaica. In 1969, he moved to the UK and lived in Brixton, London. Anthony worked in London’s ‘West End’ as a street portrait artist for many years, then as a painter and a stained glass artist, and later as a teacher at Brixton College. For a long time, he was well known as Tony Moo, but is now affectionately known as Mooji by the many seekers and friends who visited him.
Mooji is a direct disciple of Sri Harilal Poonja, the renowned advaita master, or Papaji, as his followers call him. In 1987, a chance meeting with a Christian mystic was to be a life-changing encounter for Mooji. It brought him, through prayer, into the direct experience of the Divine within. Within a short period, he experienced a radical shift in consciousness so profound that outwardly, he seemed, to many who knew him, to be an entirely different person. As his spiritual consciousness awakened, a deep inner transformation began which unfolded in the form of many miraculous experiences and mystical insights. He felt a strong wind of change blowing through his life which brought with it a deep urge to surrender completely to divine will. Shortly after, he stopped teaching, left his home and began a life of quiet simplicity and surrender to the will of God as it manifested spontaneously within him. A great peace entered his being, and has remained ever since.Learn More

Mooji offers profound guidance on the process of self-inquiry. This process is about true self-discovery and remaining as the awareness. Be inspired and moved by his grace, compassion, and wisdom.
“Everyone who attains liberation must go through difficult experiences, lots of trouble, tribulations and fear, for some period of time. Bigger than you imagine can come.
Actually, we are all experiencing these things on drip-feed throughout life but remain unaware of this. And if they are coming more intensely now, it is because you are at a stage where you can bear their weight.
Perhaps more love or the presence of a supporting spiritual being raises your courage and new possibilities begin flowering. But if you want to keep or protect your person, these forces will grow and wrap themselves around any sense of self you take yourself to be.
Self-inquiry, contemplation and devotion help you to surrender, to offer everything up to the Higher power and to merge yourself with the God-Self. And thus you find every good thing is with you. The greatest love becomes your fragrance. The greatest power flows inside you.
Nevertheless, doubts, hesitations and resistance will come. Know all is well if you don’t turn to yourself personally. If you turn to yourself, turn to yourself impersonally. Thus you turn to the Supreme, to the Lord of the universe. Just keep your head there under His holy feet until duality and unicity become one.” ~ MoojiMore Mooji Wisdom
